Fiance and I have an acoustic guitarist for our ceremony, and we’re having a really hard time coming up with an hour and 15 minutes of songs we like (guest seating, ceremony, and cocktail hour). We are very much into indie music, but we’re not sure how some of our favorite songs (some pretty obscure) will translate into acoustic guitar. So we had an idea.. we both really like the Beattles, and their songs sound great on acoustic guitar. Would it be odd to have all Beattles music played for the seating, the ceremony, and the cocktail hour? It would save us soooo much time in planning the music, and we would both really like it. What do you think?

I was kinda worried reading your title (1.25 hours of Beatles sounded a little much to me), but I think if it was all guitar and no words, it would be ok. Of course, if that’s what my friends really wanted and liked, I wouldn’t complain about it as a guest 🙂

Does the guitarist have a repertoire you can select from?

I really can’t stand the Beatles, so I voted no. However, I agree that if it’s just all guitar and no words, it’ll probably be fine.

I had no idea there were people who couldn’t stand The Beatles! They went though so many phases that I was certain there was something for everyone. Maybe some just don’t like the stuff that gets heavy play? Older songs like Help, Please, Please Me, Love Me Do aren’t my cup of tea, but I think A Day in the Life is one of the best songs ever written!
Do it, OP. We have a ton of Beatles on our mist play list.

It’s a cute idea, but I really am not a Beatles fan, and some of it is kind of sad. Instead of one artist, could you stick to a theme? All 60’s pop, or maybe beatles-influenced artists?
Then again, being that I’m not a Beatles fan, if there were no words I might not even recognize the songs as such. I don’t know, you’re probably fine.

I love the Beatles, so I would really love a reception like that as a guest. More people love the Beatles than don’t, so I think you’d be fine.

@mink: Haha, Fiance and I both don’t like them. I’m sure most of it is because we used to work at a place that played A LOT of Beatles music (I miss the days when it was country in the morning when I was usually working and then top 40s in the afternoon), and hearing those songs over and over and over four-five days a week is really grating.
